Facebook for PlayStation Vita
Facebook allows you to view your profile, connect with friends, colleagues and family, and ultimately stay in touch with your contacts. Just earned a platinum trophy in your favourite game? Update your status and let your friends know about your achievements on PS Vita.
This app has been designed especially for PS Vita, so your pictures, videos and profile will look stunning on the system's 5 inch OLED screen. What's more, you can take pictures using the PS Vita system's front and rear cameras and post them directly to Wall.
Stay connected and in touch with Facebook, and be sure to 'Like' the official New Zealand PlayStation Facebook page and keep up to date with your favourite games at facebook.com/PlayStationNZ.
Instantly update your followers with news, pictures and information using LiveTweet. As well as sending your own tweets, you can follow your friends, idols, celebrities, industry experts and organisations to find out what's happening all over the world. You can even take a screen grab of the game you're playing on your PS Vita and share it, so everyone can see you pushing the Little Deviants around or getting a hole-in-one in Everybody's Golf.
Download LiveTweet for immediate news, opinions and updates, and make sure that you follow PlayStation on Twitter.
Take a break from gaming and catch up on your favourite videos with the YouTube app. Search for millions of videos on the go, watch them in style on the PS Vita system's stunning 5" OLED touchscreen then rate them, read comments left by other YouTube users and add your own.
